Sometimes my vision in my left eye goes away, doctors have tried everything?

Sometimes my vision in my left eye goes away for about 5 min. Then comes back, it’s happened about 3 times now to me, first everything starts going dark around my eye then it closes in where i can’t see anything in my left eye, then i also get very bad migraines and doctors have tried me on pretty much everything and nothing helps.

Your amaurosis fugax is probably caused by intermittent artery obstruction
I recommend an angiography, to determine the cause, also aneurysm can cause same symptoms
My opinion your problem is vascular unless you have any other conditions you did not mention
Good Luck

A CT angiography can help rule this out .Also a MRI brain with contrast will help rule out other causes.

You should get investigations like MRI, blood tests, ultrasound of neck to check for any obstruction in blood flow of major arteries,and Echocardiogram done to check for the pumping of heart to rule out… Read more »
